The Blessings in a Backpack program provides school-age children who are food insecure with a backpack containing enough food to provide six meals during the weekend. During the week, these children receive their main meal at lunch through the federal Free or Reduced Fee Lunch program.
For each $100 raised, a child is provided a backpack filled with food every Friday during the school year. All funds raised in Michigan stays in Michigan for the program. All Clarkston Community Schools participate in the program, which has provided more than 537,200 to CCS children since it started.
Volunteers are needed to help pack and serve on the steering committees for each of the communities. Call 248-221-7749 or check for more information.
